Bones Bearings - skate bearings with a long tradition
Bones Bearings was founded in the early 80s by George Powell as part of Powell Peralta. Powell was dissatisfied with the bearing situation at the time and was finally able to realize his idea of producing skateboard bearings with a company from Switzerland.
The bearings from Bones Bearings are made in the truest sense of "from skaters for skaters", and are manufactured specifically for skateboarding. In addition, Bones leaves out the often misleading ABEC description for bearings and simply calls the skate bearings "skate-rated".
Since their production in Switzerland was associated with high costs, George Powell looked around for a new production country and found, after two years of testing, a reliable producer in China. In 1997, the time had come and Bones Bearings brought, in addition to the already very popular Bones Swiss, the less expensive Bones Reds on the market.
